Safety improvements

We’re improving the safety of State Highway 1 from Levin to Foxton while we work to deliver the new highway from Ōtaki to north of Levin. We want people to feel safer moving between sections of new and existing highway.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the Poroutawhao, Waitarere Beach and Koputaroa community came together in December 2020 to improve SH1 safety.

In January 2021, we recorded community feedback and summer holiday road safety observations to combine local knowledge with road crash data.

In the time since, we’ve developed safety improvements in discussion with Nga hapu o Ngati Raukawa most impacted marae, stakeholders and community group representatives.

A further 2km of SH1, between Foxton and Whirokino Trestle, are vulnerable to head-on crash risk and were added to our project.
